In Aspen for a meeting. Had dinner at Square Grouper. Best hush puppies I've had since leaving South Carolina. Jambalaya was also excellent, especially with "unicorn tears" hot sauce. Not too pricey...great value and great food.

I have had lunch and dinner at the Square Grouper. $ 10.00 lunch special blows the doors off any Aspen lunch/lunch special in town. Stuffed Grouper Dinner Entree could compete with The Florida Keys restaurant " The Green Turtle". Chef Tommy and MC Mike are giving back to the town that they love and understand so well. What do they understand...."How not to rip people off and give them great food, good service (they are new) and great value! Bartenders are fun and cocky in a good way. Piano bar...its an old piano with a new design made to look like a Baby Grand..hilarious. Late night menu past midnight......and they take credit cards...sorry New York Pizza. Don't waste time looking any further...remember Cooper Street Pier and Bad Billy's? Square Grouper is the more polished version..i.e....well you remember! Upstairs street level bar and dining. Even has a ring toss like Bahia Cabana in Fort Lauderdale, but smaller of course...real estate is expensive in Aspen. By the way, for those of you that don't know what a square grouper is/refers to...it is a bail of marijuana..! Ok? They also have a seasoned bartender staff, K.C. formerly from Kenichi and Pacifica as well as owner MC Mike that does whatever he is told...like a good owner..MC Mike is there. Anyway I'm tired of blowing smoke up the grouper's blow hole. Go check it out..you will not be disappointed. They just installed a smoker...best ribs I have had in the 25 years I have lived in Aspen....sorry Hickory House. No comparison.

I had a great, affordable meal at The Square Grouper! It is a new restaurant in Aspen that has a fun bar and serves cajun New Orleans style food. I loved the grits so much I have gone back every week since it opened. My friends had the seafood and conch and were very happy with their meal. Next time I go back I will have fried okra - it was the best okra I have had north of the Mason Dixon line!!!! Next time you are in Aspen stop by for a drink and cajun comfort food!

We stopped by for lunch. So glad we decided to go there. The food was great, the service was great. We ate downstairs... I wish after we had sat outside only because it was a beautiful day and would have been fun people watching. However, downstairs has a big tv screen so you can watch a sporting event. Prices were good. I would absolutely go back!
